As I noted minutes ago, this morning Barack Obama declared his opposition to Michael Mukasey’s nomination to be attorney general. Then John Edwards quickly did the same. Though Clinton, through a spokesperson, had recently said she was troubled by Mukasey’s statements on torture and executive power, she had stopped short of saying she would vote against him. The question I posed in the previous posting was this: could Hillary Clinton be far behind? The answer turns out to be, no. At mid-day, Clinton announced she will vote against George Bush’s A.G. pick. It’s another sign that Clinton will not give an inch—or an hour—to her opponents.
